Antuna Kolnago Ferante (11 July 1907 in Split – 15 May 1969 in Belgrade) was a Croatian football player. He has one cap for the Yugoslav national team.

Playing mostly as a central defender he started to play in the youth teams of HNK Hajduk Split but failed to debut in the first team. Afterwords, he moved to Zagreb where he signed with HŠK Concordia. It was while he was playing with SK Soko from Belgrade that he played his only match for the Yugoslav national team. It was on 19 May 1929 in Paris that Yugoslavia had archived its first win over the "tricolor" by 3-1 and Ferante´s brilliant exhibition on the match didn´t pass unnoticed, having earned him a call to join, together with Ivica Bek, Olympique de Marseille, where he would play two seasons. Between 1931 and 1938 he played with Rapid Bucharest in Romania.

After a heavy injury, he retired and returned to Belgrade where he begin working as a bank employee.
